- Weber County and city, state and federal entities are deemed to have met all public eligibility requirements by the mere fact of their being governmental entities.
- The nonprofit organization’s mission must fall within one of the four RAMP categories.
- The nonprofit organization must be a “resident” of Weber County and have met all eligibility requirements throughout the preceding three years. “Resident” here means having a staffed year-round office or be an organization that meets regularly in pursuit of its nonprofit goals and is run by a duly elected board of directors made up predominantly of Weber County residents.
- If it is an organization or program affiliated with a university, college, or educational institution, it must serve predominantly the community as opposed to students and faculty; and 2) it must receive less than fifty percent of its support from the university, college or educational institution.

Nonprofits applying as a nonprofit organization, please provide documentation such as a 501(c)(3) status with the IRS or State Registration stating the nonprofit status.

Government Municipal or County entities seeking funds under the Arts or Museum category must have a cultural council with the primary purpose of promoting the advancement and preservation of history, natural history, art, music, theater or dance.

An educational institution or affiliate, whose annual revenues are directly derived more than fifty percent from state funds, is not eligible for RAMP funds.
